Mr. Mayor, Key ArtNBC

Ted Danson's not like a regular mayor—he's a cool mayor. 

Or at least he's playing a cool-ish mayor on NBC's Mr. Mayor, a new comedy from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. E! News has your first look at the show's key art, which has Danson front and center as Neil Bremer, mayor of L.A., riding a scooter. 

"L.A. called. Neil answered," the poster reads. 

He's joined by Holly Hunter as Arpi, Bobby Moynihan as Jayden, Vella Lovell as Mikaela, Mike Cabellon as Tommy and Kyla Kennedy as Neil's daughter Orly.  

The show follows Neil, a wealthy retired businessman, who runs for mayor to prove he's still "got it," per NBC. "Once he wins, he has to figure out what he stands for, gain the respect of his biggest critic (Hunter) and connect with his teenage daughter, all while trying to get anything right for America's second weirdest city."
